Jake Maines moved to Hampton Roads when he began his studies at Old Dominion University in Norfolk in 2011.
As soon as he arrived at ODU, he became very involved in the community. His love for the beach wouldn't let him leave so he moved out to Virginia Beach upon graduation, and currently resides near Town Center.
Jake enjoys volunteering with The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and donating dog food to the local animal shelters.
Throughout his time in the area, Jake has been active with Thrive, Hampton Roads Innovation Collaborative, 1 Million Cups, CBDA, CBDX, ODU’s Center For Enterprise Innovation, BNI, the American Marketing Association of Hampton Roads, and more.
His efforts and passion have earned him the accolade of Millennial On The Move from CoVA Biz Magazine.
